I followed the invitation from the secretary of state Baden-Württemberg, Volker Schebesta, to the new castle of Stuttgart on 11th of November. Sportswomen and sportsmen from more than 500 various sports classes were invited. All who achieved a podium ranking in 2018/2019 season in European or World Championships. My invitation was for the bronce medal on the 2018 European F3A Championship in Belgium.
In the white room of the castle the ceremony for athletics, bikers, boatmen… and aeromodellers too part! Besides me was one more rc-pilot. Marcus Haussmann, reigning F4H World Champion (scale class). I was happy to meet one more like-minded so we shared the experience together.
In small groups we went on stage to receive the gift from the president of the sports committee Baden-Württemberg, Mrs Menzer-Haasis.
After the official part during snacks we had the chance to meet and talk to more interesting people and exchange our experiences in our sport and events.
I was very pleased about this honor and want to thank the state of Baden-Württemberg for the event!
